Most Helpful Review
Besides loading data, we do most of our transformations in it. However, the stability of the software could be improved.
Find out what your peers are saying about Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) vs. SSIS and other solutions. Updated: September 2019.
366,090 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The most valuable feature that we use is the Knowledge Modules.
It's completely user-friendly.
All our systems can be widely integrated by ODI, such as transactional systems, our data warehouses, and B2B integration.
It has the ability to easily load slowly changing dimensions.
The installation of the client ODI Studio is easy.
Besides loading data, we do most of our transformations in ODI.
In our DW/BI solution, ODI is the main tool to integrate the data in a daily batch way.
Most of the functions are very straightforward, like the data model, mapping, package, and load plan. Thus, a new user could get started very fast.
Built in reports show package execution and messages. Logging can also be customized so only what is needed is logged. There is also an excellent logging replacement called BiXpress that provides both historical and real-time monitoring which is more efficient and much more robust than the built-in logging capabilities. And none of this requires custom coding to make it useful unlike many other ETL tools.
This solution is easy to implement, has a wide variety of connectors, has support for Visual Basic, and supports the C language.
The initial setup of this solution is very straightforward.
The setup is straightforward. It's very easy to install.
With this solution, there is the potential to expand, so that you can immediately write code onto the SQL server.
The workflow features have been very valuable. You can have automated workflows and all the steps are controlled. The workflow functionality of integration services is excellent.
It has a drag and drop feature that makes it easy to use. It has a good user experience because it takes into account your most-used tools and they're lined up nicely so you can just drag and drop without looking too far. It also integrates nicely with Microsoft.
It has good data integration and good processes.
The performance of the user interface is in need of improvement.
Overall the product is fine, but sometimes its reports unknown errors while we compile ETL scripts.
It would be really good if Oracle considered enabling the tool to integrate with some other platforms that are deprecated simply for commercial reasons
It lacks a suite of tools suitable for fully processing data and moving it into decision support warehouses.
The stability of the software could be improved. Sometimes, the software just crashes.
If there was an add-on tool to hide the performance issues and solve them for me, then I might be interested in that as it would provide me value.
I rate it a seven out of 10 because there is room for growth because ODI is still new, in comparison to Informatica, which is a mature product.
Technical Support could be better.
You have to write push down join & lookup SQL to the database yourself via stored procedures or use of the SQL Task to get very high performance. That said, this is a common complaint for nearly all ETL tools on the market and those that offer an alternative such as Informatica offer them at a very expensive add-on price.
Tuning using this solution requires extensive expertise to improve performance.
The performance of this solution is not as good as other tools in the market.
Video training would be a helpful addition.
The solution should work on the GPU, graphical processing unit. There should also be piping integration available.
It needs more integration tools, so you can connect to different sources.
There were some issues when we tried to connect it to data storage. It was a connection issue.
I would also like to see full integration with our BI because then our full load of data will be available in our organization. They should incorporate an ATL process.
Pricing and Cost Advice
We found that the cost compared to other integration tools is a little high, but the solution works great.
t's incredibly cost effective, easy to learn the basics quickly (although like all ETL tools requires the traditional learning curve to get good at) and has an immense user base.
This solution is included with the MSSQL server package.
My advice is to look at what your configuration will be because most companies have their own deals with Microsoft.
This solution has provided an inexpensive tool, and it is easy to find experienced developers.

Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) 12c, the latest version of Oracle’s strategic Data Integration offering, provides superior developer productivity and improved user experience with a redesigned flow-based declarative user interface and deeper integration with Oracle GoldenGate.
ODI12c further builds on its flexible and high-performance architecture with comprehensive big data support and added parallelism when executing data integration processes. It includes interoperability with Oracle Warehouse Builder (OWB) for a quick and simple migration for OWB customers to ODI12c. Additionally, ODI can be monitored from a single solution along with other Oracle technologies and applications through the integration with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c.
|SSIS is a package is an organized collection of connections, control flow elements, data flow elements, event handlers, variables, parameters, and configurations, that you assemble using either the graphical design tools that SQL Server Integration Services provides, or build programmatically. You then save the completed package to SQL Server, the SSIS Package Store, or the file system, or you can deploy the ssISnoversion project to the SSIS server. The package is the unit of work that is retrieved, executed, and saved.|
